IceCraft emerges as a patron for art with its first Classical Dance Festival to be held at 8:30 pm on February 18, 19 and 21 at the Bodakdev AMC Auditorium, a new venue for performing arts that has come up behind Rajpath Club. Three internationally reputed Kathak dancers — Daksha Sheth, Sanjukta Sinha and Aditi Mangaldas, in that order – will present their latest productions, each with its fascinating contemporary focus. A matter of pride for Ahmedabad is that the guru of all three, initially for Daksha and Aditi, for the youngest dancer Sanjukta till today, is none other than the octogenarian Kathak legend Kumudini Lakhia.

The very titles of the three dances promise excitement. Daksha Sheth Dance Company is to come with Sari, its 2010 production. To give you a feel of what it is like when a woman, young or not so young, gets draped in a sari, there will be a workshop on it at 6.30 pm and an exhibition by Rta Kapur Chishti, a research scholar who has co-authored the book ‘Saris of India.’ If you choose, she will help you go to the performance draped in a sari in one of her special styles!

You are likely to literally hold your breath watching the inimitable dance movement of Kadamb’s Sanjukta Sinha on the second day. Her KIN has three distinctive units – Illumine, Id and Incede. Added to it for the festival is also a fourth one, Bell.  Keep guessing how they would all be distinctively different. If you reach the venue a little early, you will see an installation outside that will get you into a reflective mood for you to appreciate the performance better. Aditi Mangaldas Dance Company, whose many productions this city has seen before, brings Within, the spectacular choreography of which is expected to stir you from within. At 7:30 preceding the performance, Manjri Varde will try to unravel to you the mystery of Seven Chakras and Kundalini and with their knowledge you are likely to receive the experience more comfortably.

It’s a Kathak Trividha with a contemporary appeal.
